A birth story you might enjoy
« on: December 20, 2011, 03:32:01 AM »
I have followed this couple's blog off and on for a few years, and was surprised to learn they recently had a baby.
The love and care that went into their experience was so touching and moving, I love seeing what is possible in birth!  I have been thinking about the images of their baby all day, she is so languid, so relaxed.  The father speaks in quiet tones, there is so much gentleness and tenderness I see, I almost felt rebirthed just watching.

What is born this Christmas?
Each moment is born to us.
Opportunity calls us
To respond
With care? With haste?
With awareness of the
Perpetual meeting?

What is born this Christmas?
It is a child -
Any child, anywhere, any day.
You and I were that child.
The son or daughter we
Might have are that child.

What is born this Christmas?
It is life.
It is love
Born this day.
In hovels and palaces
It is born this day.
In malice or wonder
It arrives and walks with us.

What is born this Christmas?
My reaching to you.
I may not be who you
Would me to be.
But I am born
To you
As you are born to me
Today.

Tony
